    I'm trying to set up USB Loader GX to play Xenoblade Chronicles. When I launch USB Loader GX, it tells me that because it's on IOS 58, some games won't work; trying to launch XC boots me back to the Homebrew Channel. I'm not really sure what I need to do to make it work, and it doesn't help that I haven't touched homebrew since before the Wii U launched. I tried reading a few guides but I don't remember enough to actually follow them. Do I just need to install an IOS I don't have, like 59?

    Edit: I found what I needed in the first reply to "D2X and cIOS 249 Confusion"

    With the Wii Shop Channel closing soon, and just a few days left to add Wii Points, I've become interested in learning how to set up an emunand to install Wii VC and Wiiware backups on my Wii.

    What would be the simplest way to do this? I found the guide "WiiFlow-Mod and Emunand" posted here by AbdallahTerro in 2012. Is that still a good guide to follow, or is there a better way now?

    Can I run Wii backups from an SD card? I read that Wiiflow can but the setup tutorials I saw say nothing about it

    I already have an unnecessarily large SD card and I don't have a usb drive. Is there a downside to playing from SD or is the experience the same?

    EDIT: I just read that SDXC doesn't work. Oh well, I'll just buy a thumb drive.

    Don't do that. Flash drives generally don't work on Wiis.

    Having a proper newb moment. Ive got USB Loader GX on my Wii (Pal version). Most wii games work absolutely fine. I've set up Emunand, and installed a ton of Wads to try out. Problem is that the majority of these Wads don't work. I've trawled forums forever and I'm certain that I've got the correct Cios and tried under both 249 and 250 to work. I've also forced vidmode to Pal480p. Still, on the majority of games I get a black screen and have to hold the power button on the wii to turn it off. ANY help at all, or is it just a matter of 'most games don't work'. :/

    I use an PNY 256GB SDXC and it works just fine. I think any menu version 4.1 and above can read the larger cards, you just need to make sure to use the proper program that can format it to FAT32.

    I have Wii & GC games on my 256 SD card I'm able to load with CFG USBLoaber & USB Loader GX when my external USB is not attached or when I'm modding a new setup so I can check to make sure things are working correctly. The SDXC cards will work just fine for you, but use FAT32 GUI Formatter to get it formatted correctly.

    Hi guys. I soft modded my original Wii years ago, but have only just got round to soft modding my Wi-U. Is there an all-in-one loader I can use to play WiiWare, GameCube, and Wii titles from a USB HDD? Preferably something that can still be updated online (within the app) and something that adds a forwarder channel. Thanks in advance for any info.

    Thanks for the quick reply. What is the best anti-brick tool I should install for the vWii? Also, does GX let you play WiiWare games?

    Yup. You need a nunchuk or CC for each, though.

    I'm getting a nag screen everytime I boot up the Wii-U because I have a USB HDD attached that has all my Wii/GameCube games on it. Any way to stop this? The nag message says "You have connected a USB storage device that has not been set up for use with this console - do you want to format the device so that it can be used with this console".

    In all honesty, I know little in the area of bricks. I'd ask someone else. I believe USB loader GX can play Wiiware.
